I'm still new and experimenting but I have coconut oil and I have tried it a few times but it always leaves my hair feeling coated, dirty and dull - I can't understand why. Maybe I should try it when my hair is still wet to see if it seals in the wetness while the curls are still together? I want coconut oil to work because I like the idea of it (and when I was young I used to use mineral oil in my hair to try to get it more smooth and less frizzy/pouffy - so I think adding an oil is the right thing to do)
